Building the Case for ERP – Key 4 of 5

Having already Described the Challenges (ERP Key 1) and Documented the Operational Flow (ERP Key 2), and Assessed the Benefits, Costs, and Risks (ERP Key 3), now’s the time to roll up your sleeves. Key 4 of our Building the Business Case for ERP: 5 Keys to ERP involves Evaluating ERP Options.

In this step, you will create a list of potential solutions and evaluate them based on factors like budget, features and supplemental options, customizations, and the implementation process and timeframe. In most cases, evaluating features is as simple as comparing apples to apples. Make a spreadsheet to identify aspects you like and dislike about each application. Also make notes on your interactions with the provider relating to traits like responsiveness, longevity, accessibility, trust, etc. Be sure to ask questions and request software demonstrations.

Remember, everything you experience will help inform your decision on the best ERP distribution software fit for your company.
